comment selichos on yom kippur
You mean, do they insert certain poems followed by el melech and the 13 attributes of mercy in the middle of the different repetitions of the amida? I believe they do that at Yeshiva University per the instruction of RYDS.

@GershonGold Can you use one big wooden board as the schach? It matches all your criteria.

@ShimonbM I think he means: what other implication could you draw from the Mishna?

I said "nonagenarian". I don't know how long until Mahalia joins that group.

What do you mean "God forbid [someone have to say Yizkor]"?? Hopefully, all the nonagenarians are saying it. May God prevent anyone younger from saying it, but everyone should merit to say it at some point.

Hi user3248 welcome to Mi Yodeya! Why do you want the Rambam's opinion specifically?

In fact, I think it only belongs there. The answer doesn't address Yom Kippur at all.

comment Washing for bread before Kiddush. Convenient for sukkos?
@Ze'evFelsen So why don't you bring a chamber pot into the sukkah too? Why don't you bring in a fridge, stovetop, and microwave? People back then cooked outside too, whereas now we cook inside. If I had to walk just outside my front door to wash then yes, we would do that and not move in with friends. You seem to be missing the point, though, about which rooms are supposed to be represented by the Sukkah. (Please remember to ping me in comments @DoubleAA.)
